    I feel that my daughter has learned a lot here and had fun while learning. She really loves music and computer class too. Her teacher Mrs. Sherry Carter asks for a lot of parent involvement which I think is great!!

    BPS teachers are wonderful. They go out of their way to help children and to stay on the cutting edge. They are hard workers. I am very pleased with this school.

    I am amazed at how many quality teachers Berrien Primary has. They have been a Title 1 Distinguished School for 6 years in a row. I am extremely satisfied with the education my daughter is receiving. I have not had much direct contact with the principal but I have observed that he tries to be fair.

    I agree that the principle is lacking in inititive for meeting the needs of parents concerns. My experience with this principle for meeting my childs needs was very disappointing. I am dissapointed with his lack of concern pertaining to my child. RED - Sept 2004

    I think their principle needs to try to meet the needs of parents with concern and together with the parents decide what will be in the best interest of the child. I am dissapointed with his lack of concern pertaining to my child.
